Andromeda Series 03 Overview (2002-2003)


Captain Dylan Hunt and the crew of the Andromeda Ascendant set out on a mission to rebuild the Systems Commonwealth 300 years after its fall.

The series combines elements of hard science fiction and drama, while dealing with social and political issues such as drug abuse, death, bribery, and intergalactic politics.


The Systems Commonwealth has reunited, but there is unfortunately not much progress in the fight with the Magog and Spirit of the Abyss. Many episodes this season are standalones.

Several episodes of season three explore Trance and her role. One episode (The Dark Backward) is filmed completely from Trance’s viewpoint, showing that she “lives” through all possible alternate futures before choosing the right one.

Nietzschean crewman Tyr Anasazi makes his move at the end of the season. He implants his son Tamerlane Anasazi’s DNA into his own body, and reunites most of the Nietzschean Prides. They secede from the New Systems Commonwealth. The Season ends with Tyr betraying the New Systems Commonwealth.

For this season, Bob Engels was brought on the writing staff to fill the hole in that had been left by the departure of Robert Hewitt Wolfe and Ethlie Ann Vare.
